Participatory Approach / Home
  Why participatory approach for work in the tribal population?
Most of the plans and programmes of tribal development fail or become counter productive because they are conceived by outsiders with a vision alien to the tribals. The participatory approach with emphasis on participation of the community in identification and prioritization of the problems, formulation of solutions and active voluntary participation in implementation ensures that
The selected priorities are the real priorities of the tribals
The proposed action is acceptable and feasible
The tribals become responsible and committed to the programme
SEARCH has opted for participatory approach for programmes in the tribal area.
SEARCH seeks direction and guidance from the collective wisdom of the tribals of Gadchiroli during the annual Danteshwari Jatra at Shodhgram, and formulates programmes for community actions to be facilitated by SEARCH during the following year.
